SS project

Postby emseens » Sat Nov 10, 2012 11:36 am

Hi.
After selling my cannondale rize140, I decided to build some SS.
Today I bought brand new TREK RIG from my local bike shop for ~455pounds

Frame: TREK RIG
Forks: FOX RL
Bars: Bontrager Race Big Sweep
Stem: Bontrager SSR
Grips: Bontrager

Brake set: Avid Juicy 3
Rotors: Avid G2

Seat: Bontrager EVOKE R1
Seat Post: Bontrager

Cranks: Truvative “crap”
Pedals: some plastic crap

Wheelset: Bontrager Mustang SS
Tires: Bontrager 29-3

I'm planing to change: brakes, cranks, handle bar, seat post, stem, grips, pedals, rotors, seat, wheels (a bit later)

Next week I will order some new bits from bike-discount.de

So you buy a new bike, then change over everything apart from the frame and forks?

Mhm, math isn't your strong side, I think. Trek offered me frame for 250 pounds, and how much cost new FOX fork?

P.s. 570 eur cost that bike :D

I'm not the one who just spent €570 on a singlespeed bike I intend to change pretty much everything on. I don't think it's my maths we need to be worrying about here chap.

The important thing is that you're happy with your new bi.......... oh, wait, never mind.

Yes, it isn't rational, but it's a lot more cheaper then separate frame and forks

I see where Emseens is coming from, at £455 that is a bargain for what you get, he could have sold on the as new stuff taken off for close to what some of the upgrades would have cost!
